HC Deb 24 January 1940 vol 356 cc606-7W
Mr. Pritt

asked the Home Secretary the number of prisoners who were in each of the prisons at Wandsworth, Lewes, Chelmsford, Cardiff, Exeter, Bristol, Stafford, Holloway, and Dartmoor on 31st August last, and how many prisoners are now in each of those prisons; and how many prison visitors were actually making regular visits to each of the said prisons in July last, and how many are now making such visits?

Sir J. Anderson

The following are the figures asked for:

tion to other local authorities adopting a similar policy?

Mr. Mabane

My right hon. Friend understands that in making the list of its paid air-raid precautions staff available for inspection the local authority concerned was following a practice em- ployed in the case of its ordinary employés. The adoption of a similar practice elsewhere is a matter for the scheme-making authority concerned.
